Contemplative Prayer is the world in which God can do anything. To move into that realm is the greatest adventure. It is to be open to the Infinite and hence to infinite possibilities.

Thomas Keating

Rich Lewis – My Story

I have been a daily practitioner of Centering prayer since June 1, 2014. Centering prayer has been so life giving that I feel compelled to share it with others who wish to learn more. I cannot keep it to myself!

I am a leader of writing and publicity for Recovering Christianity’s Mystic Roots (RCMR), a centering prayer and contemplative arts workshop leader, and have published articles for a number of organizations including Contemplative Light, Abbey of the Arts Contemplative Outreach , EerdWord , In Search of a New Eden the Ordinary Mystic at Patheos and The Contemplative Writer.

I teach centering prayer in both church and college/university settings.  I welcome the opportunity to visit with your community. I am also currently taking on clients for One on One Coaching.  Contact me for more information.

I help my clients:

  • Create a Long Term, Sustainable Centering Prayer practice
  • Discover and Act on the Dreams and Goals you often bury within
  • Show up and let the world see the person you are meant to be
  • Eliminate or Neutralize challenges that get in the way of taking daily action on your Dreams and Goals.

I have a Facebook page where I post content everyday and go live at least once per week. Feel free to check it out and friend me. I look forward to seeing you there.
